2018 marks the Aarhus Convention's 20th Anniversary and Environmental Democracy has never been more important. The Aarhus Convention is a legally-binding agreement with a rights-based approach, recognizing that the public, both present and future generations, have the right to live in a healthy environment. Signed on 25 June 1998 in the Danish city of Aarhus and covering 46 countries in Europe and Central Asia, the convention grants the public rights regarding access to information, public participation and access to justice, in governmental decision-making processes on matters concerning the local, national and transboundary environment.
